Review:

Tequila-based, zesty and bitter before turning bittersweet. In March 2022, I cut the volume of gentian liqueur from 15ml (½oz) back to 7.5ml (¼oz) so fans of bitter gentian my want to stick with the original spec.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2015 by Christopher Day at General Lee's in Los Angeles, USA.
